About - Northern star marine Ltd

Based in Blisworth, on the Grand Union Canal in Northampton, I am an independent specialist Narrowboat Surveyor and Boat Safety Scheme Examiner providing Ultrasonic Pre-purchase Narrowboat Surveys, Insurance Hull Condition Surveys, and Boat Safety Scheme examinations.

I adopt a down to earth and friendly approach whilst maintaining professionalism at all times, which includes in depth survey inspections with detailed jargon free reports, normally available within 48 hours of the survey inspection. I can liaise with the broker/marina as to when the boat will be lifted out for the survey, and give free advice on all aspects of your purchase from making the initial offer to having any remedial work carried out, working on your behalf not the vendor or broker.

I hold a full Diploma in Small Craft Surveying, and have carried out over two thousand survey inspections since qualifying in 2008. I also have over 20 years practicle experience working in all aspects of the narrowboat industry including narrowboat building,  running a hire fleet and small boatyard, narrowboat repairs, engine & electrical work, and coach painting etc. 

I carry full professional indemnity and public liability insurance so you know you are fully covered. I am a full member of the Institute of Marine Engineering Science & Technology, Association of Boat Safety Examiners, and the Federation of Small Businesses.

I can travel to anywhere in the country to carry out a survey on your behalf with competitive rates.
